    The Galaxy S9 has not been released, but it is important to note that the smartphone has dramatically copied features that the iPhone X possess. The iPhone X’s facial recognition software feature and a dual-lens camera may also be replicated in the Galaxy S9.

    The Galaxy S9 will also be a great phone, but unlikely to beat the speed of iPhone X. however, it is likely to pack more firepower, better camera, better resolution, and added technologies. Android lovers should look forward to buying it once it is released.
